Vintage Japanese lucite beads in a fabulous shape that we purchased in 1983 when we were in London.

I found so many one of a kind vintage lucite and plastic treasures back then in London that were from the 1950s - 1960s!

These beads are such a wonderful and fun shape and so hard to describe - they almost remind me of dumbells or a clear barrel with a clear wheel around the middle!

I have never come across anything like these since that trip over 25 years ago, and I purchased all that the shop keeper had.

Price is for 12 of these unusual 10mm x 13mm beads that I 100% guarantee are vintage beads from the 1960s and perhaps earlier.

I am not positive of their origin (although the shop keeper told me they were Japanese) but I do know I've never seen anything like them since we found them so many years ago. I used them in a couple of earring designs which were light and whimsical !

I sold many of these clear vintage lucite beads during the 1980s and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.

You'll never see beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood gem show or local bead shop!
